Kids learn about public transport while they play
Published: Tuesday, 21 August 2018
As part of their ongoing programme to develop educational material for use in schools, GO GEORGE has now introduced two exciting additions to the collection.
The 120-piece GO GEORGE puzzle aimed at Grades 1, 2 and 3 and a colourful activity book for Grade 4s have been designed for use alongside the school curriculum on public transport.
Both these items are currently being handed out to schools in those areas where the bus service is already active, and the puzzle to the municipal libraries as well, for use in their educational programmes.
A GO GEORGE board game was the first item designed for use in schools and since its introduction in November 2017, has proved to be a hit with the youngsters who learn while they play.
The little ones at Kretzenshoop Primary School were very excited about the prospect of the new GO GEORGE puzzles to try out, and the fact that a search for their favourite mascot, Georgie, is part of the fun.

At St Paul’s Primary School, the Grade 4’s were surprised to each receive their own GO GEORGE activity book. Porchia Oktober and Keagan Botha immediately chose a challenge to test their knowledge of the bus service. Teacher Lauren Nelson (back) welcomed the books as a useful part of the transport lessons.
